The need for reintroduction of fire into our neighboring ecosystems is critical and highlighted nationally in discussions in Congress that focus on what can be done to improve declining forest and rangeland health situations across the West. The magnitude of wildfires that affected central Utah last summer are only indicative of the problem. The Public Land Management Agencies (Fishlake National Forest; Sanpete Ranger District, Manti- - LaSal National Forest; Richfield District, Bureau of Land Management; Capitol Reef National Park; and Utah State Lands) in the Richfield Fire Protection Area comprise approximately 12 million acres within Central Utah. The responsible agencies are working together to develop integrated plans that will allow and encourage a monumental increase in the number of acres intentionally burned each year. This increase will occur in stages with the initial fire management change specific to National Forest System lands within the Richfield Fire Protection Area. Plans are to implement this first stage in 1997. Implementation of this management change on the remaining public lands will occur in a second stage which is planned for 1 998. The increase in fire on the landscape will require a significant shift in the way people view the role of fin; in our ecosystems. There will be more fire and smoke in the area each year. But failure to do something of mis scale soon will only contribute to the magnitude and risk from wildfires in the future. Last year, wildfire activity in the Richfield Fire Protection Area was 21 times the 10 year average. This figure is consistent with the trend across the West. The purpose of the public meetings is to give anyone interested in this future an opportunity to participate in identifying areas on National Forest System Lands that they do not want to see burned. Of particular interest would be summer homes and land developments near or on public lands that could be damaged by fire. This information will be used to develop protection maps for the area. Meetings will be held at tbe following locations on the indicated dates from 7.00-9:0- 0 p.m. You are welcome to attend any or all of them.
